Paper Abstract

The most successful biochip technologies today are flat microarray and suspension microarray. Usually probes are fluorescence labeled. The fluorophores are excited by laser with a special wavelength. Because the fluorescence signal is very weak, it is hard to detect. The limitation of detection (LOD) is an important index of microarray analyzer. The dependence of LOD of flat and suspension microarray analyzer based on CCD and the fluorescent intensity on characters of excitation light optical system and fluorescence collection optical system as well as the parameters of elements system has been analyzed in detail based on the system configuration. A formula of LOD and fluorescence signal intensity depending on those parameters has been established. The study analyzed system limitation of detection (LOD). Also present a formula of minimal detectable fluorescent molecule numbers as the function of each parameter of microarray analyzer based on CCD. Estimated LOD of our suspension microarray detection system is about 7.9 fluorophores/μm2 at exposure time 1s.
